We’ve put together a list of our most frequently asked questions to help you with your adventure

What type of accommodation do we stay in?

    For our tours there will be a mixture of camping and motel room accommodation dependant on which tour you are going on. When we are camping, we will supply a swag and tents and catering supplies.

    If you are creating your own adventure then the choice is yours! You will find a wide range of accommodation styles:

    Campsites in National ParksCampsites require a small fee but they are well maintained and offer basic facilities: toilets, some have showers and most have BBQs. When camping, we strongly advise you to use designated camp sites and please only use the wood provided. There will be information booths when you enter the parks so make yourself familiar with park rules, particularly the wishes of the Traditional Owners as their culture is intertwined with the land and all that is in it. Once you have settled in for the night look up, the stars are a sight to behold. Please note, it may look good to pitch your tent under a tree, it is not advisable as branches can drop with no warning.

    Caravan ParksOffer a range of accommodation, camping and shared backpacker rooms that are air-conditioned and provide ablution blocks and outdoor kitchens to more expensive motel accommodation. After some time on the road, may want to spoil yourself and climb into a comfortable bed in an air conditioned room.

    Outback Pubs and MotelsThey also offer a range of options from camping to backpacker rooms to motel rooms. While in the Australian Outback you have to experience an Outback Pub, you never know who you’ll meet.

    Backpacker Hostels in the City CentresHostels are the most economical places to stay in cities and you’re bound to run into likeminded travellers. It pays to plan ahead. Try to book ahead if possible as you will most likely be travelling in the peak tourist season.

    All evening meals and breakfast are provided as well as most lunches: see your tour itinerary for details. Please let us know if you have any special dietary requirements and we will ensure they are catered for. Alcohol is not included.
